To Mr John Bell at Mr Ellis’s Hexham                                                  Newca[stle] 13 Novr 1768


Sir Walter desires that Matt Bell’s Stock may be distrained on for the £322 1s 4d due Mayd[a]y last and for the half Years rent also due Martin[ma]s but you will look to the date of the Lease, whether it is old or new Stile that you are to reckon Martin[ma]s by. I think Mr Forster or Mr Ladler should assist you herein. As to Messrs Marshall and Langlands bill you must pay it if they insist on the £4 9s 0d but you can tell them that it will appear very particular against them, to have the same work as well done by a Man that came from a Distance for so much less.

I think, as you say, that it may be as well to come from Wallington with me on Fryday or perhaps on Saturday as to return to Hexham & come hither so soon after I am etc    HR
